Met up with Yams and Denzie last night. Gakkers (recently married) joined us later at the Dubliner’s and showed us his wedding band. I actually did something that didn’t involve 1) Computers 2) Housework!
This afternoon I had tea with the ladies, and we were joined by Shin and Wen (who is getting married soon). Yams would be leaving Singapore for home tomorrow so I was really glad to see her again.
After chatting for a while, I realised my knowledge of pop culture has shrunk to sub-zero levels, after years of deliberately not watching TV (save for the news and sports channels) and listening to local radio (fake accents, and not enough of my favourite music).
- I didn’t know Harry Potter’s girlfriend was Chinese.
- I haven’t watched a full espisode of Sex in the City (even while I was in the UK).
- I don’t know the names of any actors in Buffy. Sarah Michelle-something?
- I have no idea who’s been winning in any reality shows, after Survivor 2.
In my own lame defence, I have watched the William Hung video – only because they were showing it at a conference I attended recently.
But anyway. It was great catching up with people I hadn’t seen in years. It was probably my most exciting weekend so far this year.
